Pez MP3 player becoming a reality

pez dispenser

Remember that story from a few months back about the guy who was obsessed with turning a Pez dispenser into a flash-based MP3 player? Yeah, well, sometimes dreams do come true—Pat over at was able to obtain a license from the people who make Pez to make Pez MP3 players (which means none of the messy legal hijinks that would have entailed from doing this on the downlow), and is now going through the process of getting it manufactured. He doesn't say when it'll hit stores (just that manufacturing is slated to begin early this summer), but he does confirm that the player will have a capacity of 512MB, a small LCD screen, a removable head that you can replace with existing Pez heads, and will be powered by a single AAA battery.
